    This looks awesome! Light weight (sort of). British. Available with a head sleeve.


    Has anyone played/lifted/gigged one? I think Ashdown has a winner here. I would LOVE to match this with two 1-12 neo bins (if they'll make them!).

    The whole NEO line looks good, too. The 4x8 looks tres cool. But I'd rather have two 1-12s. I know Mark Gooday is listening to me!!!!:D

    I've tried the head but it was in one of their new neo 110 400 watts combos and it sounded awesome.

    Ashdown endorser.

    Well, dang, I would expect it to sound awesome!:D:

    Any inside info? Availability? Cool tech? Comparison to the old big iron?

    Inquiring minds want to know!

    I emailed Mark telling him I want a 1-12 in this series. I have no shame.:D

    Looks sweet. Make an 800 watt version and I'm there. Not that I need 800 watts.

    I'm currently rockin' a Reidmar.

    400 watts will be no probs at all. And I believe Ashdown tends to be conservative.

    The difference between 400 and 500 watts is about 1 db. I think this'll be fine.

    Bringing this back up. I'm guessing few have experience with the Neo head and the Rootmaster 420, but can anyone comment on how similar they are? i love this demo clip

    i'm thinking of replacing my Genz Shuttle with the Rootmaster. of course the Neo looks like the next step up.

    I see that MF is now stocking the NEO head.
